How to stick to your New Year’s resolutions better: Explained

With the New Year just a few weeks away, we are all planning on celebrating it with our loved ones soon. While we all celebrate the coming of the next year, we also make mighty resolutions that we are then unable to keep up with.

That’s why it has become quite a joke in today’s society that people make many resolutions during the new year but then leave it mid-year. The problem here is that we aren’t sure as to how much time should we devote to our resolution.

Moreover, it is also said that resolutions are easier to say or make, but when it comes to following them, many of us fail to do so.

However, we have some tips for you this time to keep those resolutions going in 2024 by following some practical ways.

Ways in which we can keep up with our New Year’s resolutions better

Let’s take a look at how to best keep up with our New Year’s resolutions if we have already made them.

Have a specific goal in mind

Rather than going for the big kill, think of attaining small goals first. For example, many of us make weight loss resolutions that we ultimately abandon during the year. So, instead of doing this, make a smaller goal such as losing 5 or 10 kgs, making to-do lists regularly, or doing a half-marathon. This will help you create a realistic plan for achieving these goals.

Keep a journal of your resolutions

Make it a priority to write down the progress of your resolution because it will keep you updated and motivated to follow them regularly. When we have a list and regular updates on our resolutions, we will make sure to keep ourselves motivated and adept at completing the goals quickly.

Don’t take big steps

Always start small. Don’t assume that you will be able to achieve all the big goals easily. Try with small goals like ‘I will read one chapter of a book’, or ‘I will try to shed 10 kgs in 30 days’. This will keep your mind and body focused and you will see better results in just a few days.

Try not to repeat mistakes

If you have previously taken heavy-weight resolutions in the past and then have been unable to fulfill them, try not to do so this year. Think of something worthwhile and practically oriented that you can achieve well throughout the next year.

Take help from family and friends

In case you have decided to take a big resolution anyway, then it will be better to discuss it with your family and friends. Discuss with like-minded people as they will keep you better focused and help you achieve your resolution well.

Make resolutions that make you happy

Try to make resolutions around things that make you happy and cheerful. It could be something as simple as the task of reading, exercising, cooking, etc. Make resolutions around your hobbies and you will instantly be motivated to do well throughout the year.

Do not aim for perfection in resolutions

We always tend to think that whatever resolution we have taken for the New Year should be perfect in every sense. However, this mistake clouds our minds and we end up abandoning the resolution altogether. So, don’t aim for perfect resolutions, just take small steps first and then attempt to do the big ones.

Thus, these are some practical solutions for taking up proper resolutions for the new year. We hope you will like these pointers and will surely incorporate them into your life.
